The District issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ 24-201-Q-HD) for construction management services for the Mila Elementary School Classroom Building Addition and Site Renovation project.  The project is based on the design by DAG Architects, Inc.. DAG was awarded the design contract by the School Board on May 9, 2023 in response to RFQ 23-544-Q-HD. 

Three firms responded to the RFQ and were shortlisted. A fourth firm was non responsive.  Three firms were interviewed and ranked as follows:

  1. Heard Construction, Inc.
  2. Ivey’s Construction, Inc.
  3. WELBRO Building Corp.

The Selection Committee recommends that the Board award the construction management contract (RFQ 24-201-Q-HD) to Heard Construction, Inc. as the top-ranked firm. The preconstruction services proposal is under negotiation and can be administratively approved as it is anticipated to be under the $50,000 threshold for Board approval. The Guaranteed Maximum Price for construction will be submitted to the Board in early 2024. The project is funded through capital. 

The requested action is to approve the recommended award and authorize the execution of the contract. 

The standard form of the agreement is being used with modifications to reflect recent legislation.


Approve the award of RFQ 24-201-Q-HD, Construction Management Services for the Mila Elementary School Classroom Building Addition and Site Renovation project to Heard Construction, Inc. and authorize the execution of the construction management contract.
